I moved from the Chicago suburbs to Livermore in the early 70's - culture shock of nth degree! Took me 4 or 5 years to assimilate - and then it was "going to hell in a bucket but at least I'm enjoying the ride" from there on in! I call it my "formative drug years".

Mines Road and Del Valle were our go-to places for party weekends. We used to drive up Morgan Territory a bit as well, it always felt like you were in the middle of no-where. We knew of an old cabin a good bit off the road, a nice place to watch the stars - fall from the sky.

There is a scene in The Grateful Dead movie, I think its where some very stoned dude is trying to talk his way into the show and right behind him, scribbled on the wall it says "Livermore loves the Dead" or some such thing. The first time I saw that it was a "who are the Dead and why do they keep following me" moment.

A bunch of my friends live in the Castro Valley/Hayward/San Leandro area these days.
